Dear LOR user,

Thank you for being a big part of this community. To better support the initiatives around open educational resources in the state of Michigan, all resources on the Michigan Virtual Learning Object Repository (LOR) are being moved to #GoOpen Michigan (link is external) on September 30th, 2018. During the transition, our LOR will be moved to an archived state, not allowing new user registration or new content to be added. An email with more details was sent to registered users of the LOR in September. To make use of the great resources on the platform, we encourage you to create an account and add your own new resources to the #GoOpen Michigan platform (link is external).

Classroom Bill of Rights


This learning object will have your students understand how important protecting ourselves from government is and how necessary a bill or rights is.
Your students will share a google doc with their group for collaboration on a bill of classroom rights and then come together as a class to choose the top ten rights by having the students vote using to allow students to vote via a chromebook or computer. When finished have a class representative present your list of rights to the principal for ratification.

Learning Targets: 
Understand why the Bill of Rights were added to the Constitution
Collaborate to compile a list of Classroom Rights
Identify Rights that students desire
Practice the ratification process
Defend the rights that you feel are important
